    McCarthy confirmed he's nursing an injury over the summer, but it looks fairly ominous alright.

    No big deal but not exactly consistent.
    Agreed, but Mick also has the input of the underage coaches that have worked with Connell, up until quite recently

    Yeah I've no issue with Connell being called up but I think he should be in a position to make an informed call on Crowley by now too. Maybe he is though and doesn't quite fancy him, but obviously doesn't want to say that publicly.

    Points of view, if I was Crowley that is a big deal.

    The underage coaches who didn't think he was good enough a few months ago to be first choice for our 19s even with some notable absentees from that 19s squad

    Given that he's gone on to play first team football since then, that might say more about them than anything else

    Westwood missed all but one or two of Wednesday's last few games due to injury. I suspect that he's not fully fit.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    I had a look at the Elite qualifiers, Connell started two of the three games, and came on in the other. He missed out on the qualifying round in October, but was called into the under 18s in November and started all three games against Belgium, England, and Spain

    I was going on the assumption that Connell had not been first choice, see above.
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    I think I read elsewhere that a club isn't obliged to release players for underage internationals? Given he was on the verge of the Bolton first team they may not have allowed him to go.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    So... Who's likely to take his place?

    Doyle, Lawlor, D Rogers and O'Malley didn't play much this season. Westwood and O'Hara injured. Kelleher will probably stay with the 21s for Toulon.

    Could do worse than call up James Talbot

    He's been called up. Talbot that is, and Max O'Leary

    Is O'Leary eligible already? Or maybe he always was..

    Jack Bonham came into my head as another potential options. He's in League One but was a regular during 18/19, whereas O'Malley wasn't and Lawlor is injured.

    Also, I'm not sure if it's the jersey but James Talbot looks like an absolute freak of an athlete.

    Looks like O'Leary isn't eligible yet: https://www.fai.ie/ireland/news/two-...-ireland-squad

    Ok so what does it mean for Dan Crowley that O'Leary is in pending clearance to play and he is not ? Hardly in his favour.
    Also, couldn't Bamford have met up with everyone like O'Leary is if he so chose ?

    By this stage it's reasonable to assume that Mick has some prejudice against Crowley, perhaps he asked around one of the clubs where Crowley was not held in high regard.

    Not aiming this at anyone as I'm as guilty as anyone, but could we, and only if everyone agrees, could we focus squad announcement match threads about the people in the actual squad?

    Maybe have another catch all thread about squad omissions, that would actually be interesting to read back on, after some more devolment has happening in there career.

    In the current squad we have have some interesting and deserved call ups that go under the radar because there's a natural curiosity about who's been omitted.

    Does McDermott merit a call up?
    Should K Long be ahead of Lenihan for example?
    Who's likely to start in CM?

    Anyway just an idea,
